How to Shave with Acne and How Using Our HOCl Mist will Work Well

One of the bummer things about puberty is that it often comes with a side of acne. So, in addition to being self-conscious about your changing body, you must contend with a face full of zits. But don't worry, we're here to help. 

When you have acne, the last thing you want to do is put a razor on your skin. But, sometimes, life doesn't give us a choice. Whether it's for an important job interview or date night, there will be times when we need to shave with acne. Here are a few tips to help make the process a little easier. Here are some tips on how to shave with acne and how our HOCl Mist can help.

How to Shave with Acne

If you're dealing with a mild acne breakout, shaving can help to reduce inflammation and redness. Always use a clean razor and avoid shaving too close to the skin.

Here's what you'll need 

  • light moisturizer
  • exfoliating cleanser
  • anti-acne shaving cream
  • multi-blade razor with closely spaced blades


Start by Exfoliating Your Skin with an Exfoliating Cleanser

Exfoliating your skin before shaving is important for preventing razor burn and ingrown hairs. An exfoliating cleanser will help to remove dead skin cells and other debris from the surface of your skin, providing a closer, smoother shave. 

For best results, use an exfoliating cleanser that contains small, spherical beads or granules. Avoid using a harsh detergent or soap, as these can strip away natural oils and leave your skin feeling dry and irritated. Gently massage the cleanser into your skin using circular motions, then rinse with warm water.

Apply a Light Layer of Moisturizer to Your Face

Next, apply a light layer of moisturizer to your face. This will help to lubricate your skin and prevent the razor from tugging or pulling at the hair. 

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for a moisturizer labeled "non-comedogenic" or "oil-free." Apply a pea-sized moisturizer to your face and massage it until it's fully absorbed.

Apply a Thin Layer of Shaving Cream to Your Face

Now it's time to apply the shaving cream. Squeeze a small amount of shaving cream into your hand and spread it evenly over the area you'll be shaving. For best results, look for a shaving cream specifically designed for sensitive or acne-prone skin. These formulas are typically very gentle and help to prevent irritation.

Shave in the Direction of Hair Growth

Once you've applied the shaving cream, it's time to start shaving. Using a sharp, multi-blade razor, shave in the direction of hair growth. Avoid shaving against the grain, which can lead to irritation and ingrown hairs. 

When shaving sensitive areas, such as the neck, be extra careful to avoid nicks and cuts. Rinse the razor frequently with warm water to remove any hair or shaving cream that's built up on the blades.

Rinse Your Face with Warm Water and Apply a Light Moisturizer

Once you've finished shaving, rinse your face with warm water to remove any remaining shaving cream. Pat, your skin dry with a clean towel, then apply a light layer of moisturizer. This will help to soothe and protect your skin.

How our HOCl Mist Can Help

Our PurClarity's HOCl Mist can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars and blemishes. The mist contains Hypochlorous acid, a natural disinfectant that helps kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. 



When applied to the skin, it can help to speed up the healing process and reduce the appearance of scars and blemishes. To use, simply mist the solution onto clean, dry skin. Allow it to air dry for best results. For best results, use twice daily.

How does our PurClarity's HOCL Mist Reduces Acne Scars?

Disintegrates Bacterial Biofilms

Left unchecked, acne can cause scars that last a lifetime. But there's hope! Our PurClarity HOCL Mist is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of acne scars. 

Here's how it works: our HOCL Mist contains a high concentration of hypochlorous acid, which breaks down the bacterial biofilms that contribute to acne breakouts. HOCL is a natural anti-inflammatory, so it helps to soothe red, inflamed skin. Simply mist the face with PurClarity HOCL Mist 2-3 times daily.

Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties

The powerful combination of natural ingredients in PurClarity's HOCL Mist help to repair and restore damaged skin. One of the ways it does this is by reducing inflammation. 

The high concentration of Oxygen in the HOCL molecules helps to reduce swelling and redness while also jumpstarting the skin's natural healing process. This can be especially helpful for those who suffer from acne scars. 

By rapidly reducing inflammation, PurClarity's HOCL Mist can help to diminish the appearance of scars and promote healthy, new tissue growth.

Provides Quick Relief

Itchy, inflamed skin is no fun for anyone. If you suffer from mild to moderate dermatitis, you know how frustrating it can be to constantly scratch and feel pain. HOCL, or hypochlorous acid, is a natural solution that can provide quick relief. 

In one study, patients who used HOCL saw a significant reduction in itching and swelling. HOCL works by reducing inflammation and calming the skin. 

Kills Bacteria

In addition to reducing inflammation, HOCL is also effective in killing bacteria. This makes it a great choice for those struggling with acne. Acne is caused by a build-up of bacteria on the skin, so by reducing the bacteria, you can help to prevent breakouts. 

HOCL is so effective that it is used in hospitals to clean wounds and kill bacteria. When applied to the skin, it can help to reduce the bacteria that causes acne and promote clear, healthy skin.

Get that Clean Shave 

Shaving with acne can be difficult, but it's not impossible. Following simple tips and using the right products can minimize irritation and inflammation while still achieving a close shave. If you're struggling to find a shaving routine that works for you, give these tips a try. 

Using our HOCl Mist may make the process a little bit easier. Our mist is designed to help kill bacteria and soothe inflammation, providing a better shave for those with acne-prone skin. Have you tried using our HOCl Mist while shaving?
